Because You Are With Me Can you do anything? Or do you sometimes need a bit of help from someone you love?
From the winner of the CBCA Picture Book of the Year (2009) comes a new picture book about the special relationship between fathers and their daughters
Spend the day with a little girl and her daddy as they discover all the things they can achieve when they are together. Using a striking collage technique with lokta paper, Kylie Dunstan has created another visual masterpiece that will appeal to young readers who loved Collecting Colour.
Kylie Dunstan was born in Broken Hill, New South Wales, in 1972, and completed secondary and tertiary (Bachelor of Visual Arts) schooling in Adelaide. She worked for a number of years in commercial art galleries before taking up a position as an Arts Officer at a community centre in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory. One of Kylie s duties was to take the local women out on bush trips to collect pandanus and colour for weaving and dyeing the mats and baskets sold in the Arts Centre. These trips inspired the idea for the picture book COLLECTING COLOUR, which won Picture Book of the Year in the 2009 CBC Awards. Kylie currently lives in Vietnam with her partner and two children.
